More Days in Lockdown

Self-Isolation The Coronavirus lockdown continues. Anna has now had a letter for the Welsh Health Authorities to say that she in in a higher risk category and should therefore be ‘properly’ self-isolating for 12 weeks. That means not leaving the house for anything and either making sure the others in her household are also isolating...

Garden Retreat

At least we are still allowed out into our garden during the Coronavirus lockdown. The weather has been pretty good for it too. 9 days without rain and counting means that the floodwaters have receded and I’ve been able to do a bit of tidying up out there. Hedges and taller shrubs have been cut...

Lockdown on the Beach

Little has changed as far as the Coronavirus lockdown is concerned. We’ve been told in no uncertain terms to ‘Stay at Home’. Last weekend no one seemed to be listening as it was busier than a Bank Holiday weekend here, but the message is now getting through it would seem. For us, it isn’t really...

Up the Dyfi

Making the most of my One Excursion per Day With the Coronavirus lock-down in full effect, we are only allowed one excursion outside to exercise each day. I thought I’d make the most of it today. The weather was forecast to be really nice. I’d already done lots of University work from home on Monday...

Socially Distanced Intervals in the Sunshine

Today’s Socially Distanced surf ski session in the sunshine consisted of eight 0.25 mile intervals with 0.25 mile recoveries between them. The intervals were pretty tough at times so there was some sweating and dribbling involved but I was miles from anyone else with the whole of Borth Bay to myself so that wasn’t a...

It was feeling quite Spring-like out there over the weekend. The sun was shining, I mowed the lawn for the first time this year and there was quite...

Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...

Covid-19 and Working From Home

As you may have gathered from my previous post, Anna and I are currently working from home. We haven’t been forced to, but the University has asked us to work from home as much as possible. This seems like a sensible idea in an effort to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus. In fact...

Covid-19, Stopping the Spread

These are strange times indeed. Worrying times too. Everything seems to be dominated by Corona Virus news and the ever increasing threat of Covid-19. Our daily lives are being affected by it in ever increasing ways. Working from home seems likely to be the norm for many for some time come. Self-isolation, social distancing and...

Covid-19 Coronavirus, Panic Buying and Self Isolation

I thought it was time to write a blog post about the Covid-19 Coronavirus if only so that if we are ever reading back about what was going on at this time in our lives we’ll have a record of what is by far the biggest news story at the moment. Things are changing on...
